Situated 2 miles from Broadway, Ena's Place was a barn but was converted and extended in 2013 to create a lovely two bedroom single storey home. It forms one side of a courtyard, with 'Dilly Dally' @ Slade Barn and the owners' house making up the rest of the 'U'. Full length windows along one side of the barn make the most of wonderful views across the Vale of Evesham to the Cotwolds and the Bredon Hills. Guests are welcome to sit and relax in the courtyard or to make use of the owners' spacious garden. For those who want to explore the Cotswolds but enjoy perfect peace this could be the place for you. There is ample off road parking for 2- 3 cars. Non crawling babies and children over 7 welcome. The Inn and Brasserie at Childswickham, less than a mile away, serves good food.
Optional guided walks by local, experienced walk leader which can be tailormade to suit your requirements.
Enter the barn into the hallway. This is an ideal space for leaving shoes and coats.

Childswickham in Worcestershire is located within the flat open landscape of the Vale of Evesham, between the Bredon and Cotswold Hills, two miles from Broadway. It is an area of market gardening, arable and pasture land, with surrounding fields defined by hedgerows. The glorious, uninterrupted views make this a very special place.
On the edge of the North Cotswolds it has a mixture of building styles, Cotswold limestone, red brick and traditional Worcestershire black and white half timber and thatch. The earliest buildings are timber framed with wattle and daub and Cotswold limestone, and the 15th century spire of the original Norman church, St Mary the Virgin, is a local landmark that can be seen from miles around.
Just 2.5 miles away, Broadway’s wide High Street is lined with horse chestnut trees and contains a mixture of period houses and picturesque Cotswold stone cottages. Located on an ancient “ridgeway”, the village was on the main road from London to Worcester. On such an important route it is inevitable that it is steeped in history. During the English Civil War King Charles I conferred with his confidants at The Lygon Arms Hotel.
Broadway is a shopper???s paradise. Small boutiques, designer jewellers and gift shops vie with fine quality antique furniture and galleries for attention, whilst a variety of cafés, tea shops, pubs and restaurants cater to all tastes and budgets.
Childswickham forms an ideal base for visiting the Cotswold's numerous villages, including Chipping Campden, and is within easy reach of such places as Stratford upon Avon with its Shakespeare Theatre, Warwick with the finest medieval castle in England, Regency Cheltenham, Oxford with its University Colleges, Bath with its Roman Baths and so much more.
Hidcote Garden, owned by the National Trust and world renowned is just a short drive away and, almost opposite, is Kiftsgate Garden which is well worth a visit.
